As the 9th Assembly of the Plateau State House of Assembly is expected to be inaugurated via a proclamination by the Executive Governor of Plateau State, Rt. Hon. (Dr) Simon Bako Lalong.
Plateau citizens are keeping a close watch to see how the proceedings would be in the house, to see who Governor Lalong will support to emerge as the new speaker of the 9th assembly.
The major contenders of the speakership all from the Northern Senatorial Zone of the state, are Hon. Abok Nuhu Ayuba, from Jos-East (APC); Hon. Ibrahim Baba Hassan, Jos-North-North (APC), and Hon. Peter Ibrahim Gyendeng of Barkin-Ladi (PDP) constituencies.
Opinions have differed on the candidature that will emerge, considering the sensitive nature of the Plateau project.
And that is why the governor must consult deeply to come out with a balance and credible speaker, as the dice is cast.
The one million naira question Plateau people are asking, who will Lalong support?
